Caps!  Caps for Sale!  Fifty cents a cap!"  calls the peddler, walking up and down the streets.  He balances a huge stack of caps on his head.
One day he stops under a tree to take a nap.  When he wakes up all the caps have disappeared except his own red cap.  Where on earth could the caps be?
He looks all around for the caps.  No caps.  When the peddler finally looks up into the tree, what do you think he sees?  On every branch is a monkey and on every monkey is a cap.
The peddler calls over and over, shaking his hands and stamping his feet, "You monkeys, you!  You give me back my caps."  But the monkeys only shake their hands and stamp their feet and reply,  "Tsz, tsz. tsz!"
Finally the peddler throws down his hat and begins to walk away.  All the caps come flying down from the tree.  And back to town he goes calling, "Caps!  Caps for Sale!" Fifty cents a cap!"
